Cancellation Policy

Our goal is to provide quality free legal services to all our members in a timely manner. No-shows, late arrivals, and cancellations inconvenience not only our team, but other students as well. Please be aware of our policy below regarding missed appointments.

When you book your appointment, you are holding a space on our calendar that is no longer available to other students. To be respectful of your fellow students, please contact the PARSA Office on 02 6125 4187 as soon as you know you will not be able to make your appointment.
